Our Commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

The MIT Executive MBA is committed to fostering an inclusive and supportive environment for all our students while advancing a community that embraces diversity—empowering everyone to learn and do their best at MIT. Our goal is to enable leaders to achieve the extraordinary, regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, religion, disability, and sexual orientation. 

As part of the MIT Executive MBA, you’ll join a cohort of global leaders eager to learn from diverse perspectives and build lasting relationships with their classmates in the process. 

There are several ways the MIT EMBA team works to ensure an open and inclusive environment for every cohort, both in and out of the classroom.  

MIT Executive MBA Ask Me Anything Panels
These student-hosted sessions allow for open conversions on various topics, including but not limited to gender, gender identity, religion, biases, and life in and out of the military. 

MIT Executive MBA Women’s Group
MIT Executive MBA Women’s Group works to increase opportunities for EMBA women through networking events, speaker series, professional development workshops, and mentorship programs.

Fireside Chats
Each weekend, two members of the class host personal “Fireside Chats” to share their reflections on their unique journeys and how they ended up joining the MIT EMBA.

Women’s Advancement Series
Hosted by MIT Executive Degree Programs, this series of candid conversations builds skills to enable success and forward-thinking. The Women’s Advancement Series is a way to engage with the extraordinary community of MIT executive women and allies to address challenges facing women in the workplace. 

While the above opportunities are offered specifically to MIT EMBA students, our cohorts can take advantage of opportunities from the broader MIT Sloan community. The MIT Sloan DEI office provides opportunities for all students to engage in programming aimed at diversity, equity, and inclusion.
